UPDATE 2-Sam's Club focusing on remodels, new layout| Reuters

* Increasing space for produce, meat, bakery

* Decreasing space for sporting goods, movies, DVDs

* Sees labor hours in clubs down 6-8 pct in next 5 yrs

* Wal-Mart shares down almost 1 pct

(Adds CEO comment, details on club openings, byline)

By Nicole Maestri

SAN FRANCISCO, Oct 22 Wal-Mart Stores Inc's

(WMT.N) Sam's Club division is shifting its focus from opening

new clubs to remodeling existing ones as it strives to increase

sales, the company said on Thursday.

The No. 2 U.S. warehouse club operator also said it is

testing a new store layout, revamping merchandise to add more

food and drugs, and streamlining operations so it can https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d-bH7dZ-o2Y reduce

labor hours in its clubs 6 percent to 8 percent over the next

five years.

"We are absolutely raising the bar on club productivity,

while al so focusing on improving that in-club experience,"

Sam's Club Chief Executive Brian Cornell said at Wal-Mart's

analyst meeting.

Earlier this year, Wal-Mart tapped Cornell, the former

Michaels Stores Inc chief executive, to be the CEO of Sam's

Club. Cornell replaced Doug McMillon, who became president and

CEO of Wal-Mart International on Feb. 1.

Analysts have been waiting to hear how Cornell plans to

increase Sam's Club sales and boost membership. Sam's Club

members pay a fee to shop in its clubs and receive discounts on

goods from computers to jumbo packages of paper towels.

Sam's Club sales fell 3.2 percent to $11.91 billion in

Wal-Mart's second quarter that ended July 31, while sales at

clubs open at least a year, or same-store sales, rose 0.6

percent.

NEW STORE LAYOUT

The retailer said on Thursday it will increase space in its

clubs for produce, meat and bakery i tems, over-the-counter

drugs, and health and beauty-care items. It is cutting space

for large appliances, sporting goods, furniture, movies and

DVDs.



The new store layout being tested also includes a large

center aisle and improved sightlines across the store.

Sam's Club is also adjusting its growth strategy.

"We're shifting our focus from new-store growth to

remodeling our existing https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Renovation base," Cornell said.

The retailer plans to remodel 50 to 55 clubs this fiscal

year, and 70 to 90 next fiscal year. That is up from 21

remodels last year.

Meanwhile, it will open or relocate 15 clubs this year, and

five to 10 clubs next fiscal year. That is a decline from last

year, when it opene d or relocated 20 clubs.

While Sam's Club caters to individuals and small business

owners, the retailer said it is increasing its focus on a third

type of member -- the business owner who also shops there for

family needs.

Sam's has also launched a new program called "eValues,"

which is aimed at getting consumers to sign up for its more

expensive membership. Those that do will then get access to

special coupons to use in-store.

Wal-Mart shares slipped 44 cents , or less than 1 percent,

to $50.19 on the New York Stock Exchange.

Traveler beware: Older hotels and motels across US lack fire sprinkler systems

MONTGOMERY, Ala. - MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) -- A fast-moving fire that killed four college students in a suburban Birmingham motel illustrates https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KhxCu6cQBMs a deadly problem facing travelers around the country: Many older hotels and motels can legally avoid installing sprinklers that stop blazes before they kill guests.

Since a catastrophic fire killed 87 at the MGM Grand Hotel in Las Vegas in 1980, a national push to require sprinkler systems in new hotels and motels has helped bring fire deaths down significantly.

Yet federal officials say an estimated 3,900 hotel and motel fires are reported to U.S. fire departments each year, causing on average 15 deaths, 150 injuries and $76 million in property loss. The National Fire Protection Association says it's rare for a guest to die when a fire breaks out in a room with sprinklers, and that there hasn't been a documented fire in a sprinkler ed hotel that killed more than one person.

"It's much safer to stay in a sprinklered facility. It's unfortunate most travelers don't give that a thought," said Robert Duval, senior fire investigator with the NFPA.

While newer hotels must install sprinklers, older ones do not, and they take in travelers around the country. A study by the U.S. Fire Administration for 2005-2007 found that about 60 percent of hotels and motels reporting fires lacked sprinklers.

The National Fire Protection Association also found every single fire death from 2002 to 2005 was in a motel or hotel that lacked a sprinkler system. More recent statistics weren't available.

If the Birmingham-area hotel had sprinklers, Duval said, the fire "would have been a non-event. Everybody would have gotten to go home."

The Days Inn Motel in Hoover, a wooden structure built in 1964 to resemble an old South plantation, wasn't required to have sprinklers. State Fire Marshall Ed Paulk said f our college students from Mississippi who died in the Jan. 19 fire would still be alive if the motel had been equipped with sprinklers.

"That would have prevented the loss of life," Paulk said.



Safety advocates and industry officials say travelers often aren't aware of whether their hotel has sprinklers. The president of the Greater Birmingham Lodging Association, Mairs Baxter, said it is "very rare" for customers to ask.

"The only ones I've noticed that do that are representatives of government associations," said Baxter, who is also genera l manager of a Birmingham-area LaQuinta Inn.

Anecdotally, the presence of sprinklers doesn't appear to be http://www.nbcmiami.com/video/ something the older and less-expensive places advertise. In a spot check of older and cheaper hotels and motels, a reporter saw that their websites generally note amenities such as Internet access and cable TV, but not sprinklers, even if they have them. In phone interviews, fire safety equipment wasn't mentioned by clerks, unless asked. The check included about 20 hotels in nine states.

Federal government employees are required to stay in hotels with sprinkler systems on business trips. FEMA provides an Internet search engine -- http://www.usfa.dhs.gov/applications/hotel -- of approved accommodations.

Steve Muncy, a spokesman for the American Fire Sprinkler Association, said many older hotels do not install sprinkler systems because of the cost.

"It's not cheap," said Muncy, whose trade group represents sprinkler installers and manufacturers. "The older the building, the more expensive it is. The cost varies depending on the size and age of the building. Obviously it's cheaper in a one- or two- story motel than in a high rise."



Nationally, sprinkler systems are required by local ordinances and building codes in most hotels built or remodeled within the last 10 years, but those laws generally don't apply to older facilities. It's also hard to track where sprinklers are required, partly https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KhxCu6cQBMs because sprinkler regulations are often in local ordinances and not state laws.

In Alabama, all motel and hotel rooms must have smoke detectors, but sprinkler requirements vary by city.

They were not required at the Days Inn in Hoover, where the Mississippi University f or Women students checked in for a day of shopping.

The four -- 18-year-old cousins Alondan "Angel" Turner and Catherine Ann Muse of Cordova, Ala.; Jamelia Brown, 18, of Grenada, Miss.; and Joslynn McGee, 19, of Corinth, Miss. -- were staying in a room upstairs and a few doors down from the room where a maintenance worker, Dhirajlal Bhagat, 55, had been burning incense in a makeshift Hindu shrine. The fire began after he left the room.

Without sprinklers, there was nothing to slow the fire as it spread up the outside walls. The two-story building had firewalls, but Paulk said those were mostly ineffective since the fire spread on the outside.

The blaze blocked firefighters from reaching the women, who sought shelter in a bathroom.

There was a far different outcome on Nov. 8 at a Clarion Suites Hotel in Yuma, Ariz., where an occupant started a fire while using an appliance to heat cups of liquid. After the person left the room, the device overheated, catch ing the surrounding counter and wallboard on fire, said Yuma fire spokesman Mike Erfert. But a sprinkler head kept the fire from spreading to other rooms.

The MGM Grand fire on Nov. 21, 1980, that killed 87 is the second-worst hotel fire in modern U.S. history. It prompted the adoption of strict fire codes in Las Vegas and elsewhere.

There has not been a fatal high rise hotel fire in Las Vegas in at least 15 years, partly because of ordinances adopted by the city following the MGM fire, including one requiring sprinklers in all high-rise hotels, said Tim Szymanski, public information officer for Las Vegas Fire and Rescue.

Most times, high-rise hotel fires are confined because of sprinklers by the time fire fighters arrive.

"They are worth their weight in gold, Szymanski said.

California Residents Face Fines as Bone-Dry State Seeks to Reduce Water Use

Across the West, a historic drought - the worst in over a century - has sparked a water crisis that for the first time has forced California officials to impose mandatory statewide water restrictions.

"We need https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uRbW3ayDWVQ water," Gov. Gerry Brown said today. "We're gonna have to get water."

Watch: Extremely dry conditions fuel wildfires in at least five states.



There have no been no fewer than a dozen raging wildfires, from Idaho and Oregon to Arizona, Washington and Nevada.

The Bully Fire in Northern California chewed through 10-square miles and destroyed eight homes. The landscape has become a tinderbox and water reservoirs http://www.popularmechanics.com/home/lawn-garden/how-to/a724/install-sprinkler-system-underground/ are now bone dry. About 2,200 firefighters have been working hard to keep the flames away.

Nevada's Lake Mead is now at its lowest point since the Hoover Dam was built, officials said.

In today's announcement, officials in California announced that it is illegal to let sprinkler systems flow into the street, hose down sidewalks and driveways or use an open hose to wash your car.

"I think my husband has been guilty of coming out late at night and doing a little secretive watering underneath the trees," resident Pam Ferko said.

Scofflaws faced fines of up to $500 a da y.

Previously, residents had ignored the governor's pleas to cutback - statewide, water usage actually went up - so now Californians are being encouraged to rat out their neighbors.

"Our water complaint calls have gone up exponentially from the last two years," said Terrance Davis of the state's Department of Utilities.



Lawn sprinklers and car washes aren't the only culprits though.

Agriculture uses 80 percent of the state's water. The drought is projected to cost $2 billion in https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uRbW3ayDWVQ crop losses this year, which will mean higher food prices nationwide.
